Sexy, but Scratchy!

While I am disappointed that this scratchy robe is not the comfortable-but-sexy set I was looking for, I still love that it looks sexy paired with another piece of lingerie underneath, and will continue to wear it that way.

Pros:
Beautiful lacing, everything besides lacing is comfortable, $, looks good paired
Cons:
Scratchy, too short, not the greatest for curves while tied

Okay, so as a mom and a wife I love to look sexy, but there are times I wish I could just have both- sexy and comfortable. I want something that I can wear to bed, look sexy in while we play, and then fall asleep in afterwards and sleep in all night long. When I saw this robe on Eden, it looked like the perfect solution. With the satiny looking sleeves and the loose fitting appearance, it really looked like something for me, so I decided to give it a shot!


CONTENTS

The package arrived in a plain brown box, as usual from Eden. Upon opening, I found the robe wrapped in plastic wrap and armed with a coat hanger.

This set includes a black robe with beautiful back lacing, a simple black G-String thong, and a cute matching coat hanger. Upon first opening, the robe material felt great! Soft and silky in my hands, and the lacing on the back really stood out to me as very pretty.


MATERIALS/DESIGN



This gorgeous robe set by DreamGirl comes with a robe and a thong, both in black.

The robe is made out of 75% polyester and 25% nylon. It has beautiful lacing all across the back, and what I couldn't tell from the stock picture, it also comes towards the front, and a little under the arms. It closes in the front with a tie. The sleeves are very flowing and comfortable, and hit right under the elbow.

Close- up of the lacing:



The thong is the simplest thong you can get; very basic and made out of 100% polyester... not too much to say about this plain thong, except the quality of the material and make seems to be good.




SIZING/FIT

I am currently in-between sizes on most things, so I chose to order the smaller size, because I want to be able to wear this one for a long time.

My sizes are:
36D" bust, 30" waist, 38" hips, and I am 5'2.

DreamGirl's size chart for M says:
34-36" bust, 26-28" waist, and 36-38" hips.

Thinking that this was just a robe and robes are typically a little billowy, I ordered down. If you are on the border, or want a longer or looser fitting robe, I would order up. Being only 5'2, this is VERY short on me, the bottom of the robe hitting right under my butt, and riding up while I walk or move around to show more than I would have liked to show. I just can't imagine a taller person fitting in this correctly unless at least ordering one size up. If you have a few more inches on me, I would definitely order a size up, unless you want the bottom of the robe to expose half your butt.

Due to the length of the robe, mixed in with where the ties on the robe sit, it accentuated my hips and love handles in a way that I just cannot appreciate while wearing it tied up.



When first putting the robe on, it felt great! The long, loose, silky sleeves felt soft and luxurious on my skin, and it was very easy to tie up. Unfortunately, after wearing for only about 10 minutes and moving a bit, the lace in the back started to get very irritating. It is VERY scratchy, and not only is it only on the back-piece; it also comes around towards the front, and under the arms. The soft and silkiness of the sleeves mixed in with the harsh scratchiness of the back piece is just not a good combo at all!


Beautiful, but oh so irritating and scratchy! Definitely not the idea I was going for!

The thong fit perfect, the sides didn't dig in at all, and there was a good amount of coverage in front.
Experience
After my initial trying on process alone in the bedroom, I was disappointed that this was not the sexy AND comfortable robe I was looking for. I didn't really like how it looked tied very much, and the back definitely made it not comfortable enough to sleep in or have my morning coffee in. So, I ditched the idea of comfortable and decided to aim for sexy instead. I really wanted to find a way to love this robe, having loved the lacing so much, and found a way I did!

I found that this piece looks really great over a white corset or form fitting piece of lingerie underneath. Tied, it adds a really nice touch of mystery and sexiness, and untied, it really adds a nice touch with the contrasting black and white and the pretty black lacing in the back.



I just love the edge of mystery it gives to the piece underneath. Alone, the lingerie underneath leaves little to the imagination, but paired with the robe over it, it adds some mystery, not to mention beautiful lacing to the mix.

When looking for a new piece to add to our collection, my husband felt "eh" about my choice to pick this robe. He seemed to have written it off as a comfy piece that I will sleep in that won't be anything special. I felt the same way after my initial trying on, but after pairing it with something else, we both agreed that it was great for playtime! He loved the look of it covering another piece, and he even liked the simple thong. I typically wear thicker laced thongs, so the look of the G-String thong really turned him on, too! We now both agree to add this to one of "the regulars" for our nighttime playtimes.

    Thanks! I think if it were like at least 3-4 inches longer and a different material in the back on the lacing it would be perfect! lol

    The back is gorgeous. I tend to find DG products to be a bit small in my usual size large, so I have to get an XL if it is available. For this one, I guess I would have to go 1X/2X, but if it is scratchy, I think I will pass.

    Thanks for the great review.

    Thank you for the review. I'm always wary of lacy garments, they're scratchy 98% of the time.

    Ms. N: thanks for the tip, I will keep that in mind next time I order something from DG. It's hard to know what size to get when they are all so different usually!

    Rossie: I know, I am so bummed! I really wanted this one to be different!

    married with children: you're welcome

    JessCee: It sucks, huh! It would be so great without that annoying scratching!!

    mpfm: you're welcome!
